    I know this is elementary, but CPanel docs don't explain much, just say "click this, type that". Soooo.....

    Could someone please explain the difference between a Full Backup and a Home Backup for a CPanel user to me?

    Thank you very much. :)

    Home backup --> home directory only (everything you can see when ftp'd in)
    Full backup --> also data elsewhere on server (sql databases, email forwarders and autoresponders, cron jobs, everything needed for a full restore)
